Synopsis: Initiate innovation and get things done with a guide to the process of academic change

Change Leadership in Higher Education is a call to action, urging administrators in higher education to get proactive about change. The author applies positive and creative leadership principles to the issue of leading change in higher education, providing a much-needed blueprint for changing the way change happens, and how the system reacts. Readers will examine four different models of change and look at change itself through ten different analytical lenses to highlight the areas where the current approach could be beneficially altered. The book accounts for the nuances in higher education culture and environment, and helps administrators see that change is natural and valuable, and can be addressed in creative and innovative ways.

The traditional model of education has been disrupted by MOOCs, faculty unions, online instruction, helicopter parents, and much more, leaving academic leaders accustomed to managing change. Leading change, however, is unfamiliar territory. This book is a guide to being proactive about change in a way that ensures a healthy future for the institution, complete with models and tools that help lead the way. Readers will:

  • Learn to lead change instead of simply "managing" it
  • Examine different models of change, and redefine existing approaches
  • Discover a blueprint for changing the process of change
  • Analyze academic change through different lenses to gain a wider perspective

Leading change involves some challenges, but this useful guide is a strong conceptual and pragmatic resource for forecasting those challenges, and going in prepared. Administrators and faculty no longer satisfied with the status quo can look to Change Leadership in Higher Education for real, actionable guidance on getting change accomplished.

From the Back Cover:

Praise for Change Leadership in HIGHER EDUCATION

When it comes to the future of higher education, there are as many different opinions as there are stakeholders. But there is one thing deans, presidents, faculty, staff, students, and parents can agree on: change is needed. Change Leadership in Higher Education starts with this understanding. Instead of presenting yet another opinion about what to change, Jeffrey Buller addresses how leaders can create a culture of change in colleges and universities of every size and structure.

Today's "next big thing" may be tomorrow's aging fad. In Change Leadership in Higher Education, readers are introduced to a whole new framework for viewing change, along with the tools they'll need to take advantage of real possibilities—rather than simply jumping on the latest bandwagon. The examples in this book show that the most effective leaders in higher education are more concerned with encouraging innovation and creativity than they are with mandating any specific vision. To do this, leaders need to move from strategic planning to organic, forward-thinking leadership. Change Leadership in Higher Education is a highly accessible resource for making this crucial transition.

Colleges and universities have a long-honored reputation as places where new ideas can take root and grow, eventually improving society as a whole. As new technologies, demographic changes, and shifting social structures introduce new components to the world of higher education, academic leaders at all levels have a unique opportunity to adapt the process of change. Through theoretical models of change and practical, real-world success stories, Change Leadership in Higher Education will show you how to lead an institution that will thrive for years to come.
